You can get killer prices on some items, like pita bread and pistachios, here. The produce section leaves something to be desired (sometimes stuff seems a bit old). There are a few parking spaces in back, which is nice since parking on Wilshire is such a drag. I highly recommend their halva (ask for it at the counter--so much better than the prepacked stuff) as well as the faludeh they sell (in the freezer case at the counter). They also sell rosewater, orange water, and the like, which are good for making Persian desserts. At Tehran market you will not only find exotic ingredients, but a variety to choose from.

If you live in the Santa Monica area there are only two places I know of to get authentic middle eastern/Indian ingredients 1) the shops on Venice Blvd near Culver City or 2) Tehran Market. Since I live two blocks away from Tehran Market it is obviously my first choice. I wouldn't go here for produce although they sometimes have some interesting items here and the herbs are always much cheaper than they are at the Vons around the corner. If you are in the mood to cook a tandoori or a masala or a whatever Indian this place is a pretty good one-stop shop. And they are very nice/

PROS: Good selection of Indian spices
CONS: Not the fanciest place on the block
